With Britain already at the forefront of claims that its government is too quick to issue financial hand-outs to anyone, while taking away from those who have paid into the system for their entire working lives, the latest proposal by a Worcestershire man could well see British taxpayers' money being used to fund visits to prostitutes and brothels by disabled people.
Shockingly, this type of abuse of British taxpayers' money is nothing new. Back in 2010, the Daily Mail reported of a 21 year-old man whose trip to visit prostitutes in Amsterdam's Red Light District had been paid for out of the last government's £520million scheme, introduced as a means of empowering those with disabilities. The man's social worker claimed that sex was a 'human right' for this unnamed individual - described as a frustrated virgin.
But is this the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back as far as the British public are concerned? Exotic holidays, lap dances, internet dating subscriptions - some examples of luxuries being paid for by local authorities at tax payers' expense.
Over a period of 12 months, a Norwich man who suffers with mental health problems, received a holiday in Tunisia, expensive art materials, driving lessons, and a subscription to an internet dating site. The man received these funds on top of his regular state benefits, which he was in receipt of due to 'mental problems' which occurred following his divorce from his wife.
This revelation has angered many people who already feel that, as working taxpayers, they receive a bum deal by the government. Pensioners whose winter fuel benefits have been cut in order to redistribute funds elsewhere, working families who struggle to cope with the increasing cost of gas and electricity, regardless of the increasing number of hours they work each week, and parents who now face losing child tax benefits - just some examples of how tax money would be better spent. But the British government justifies spending millions of pounds of taxpayers' money on a depressed virgin losing his virginity, as 'human rights', and more important than the thousands of other areas in which the finances would be more fairly, and morally, distributed.
